Usage Tips

These are the parish registers for the parishes in Leikanger clerical district - Leikanger, Frevik, Feios (Rinde), Tjugum (until 1849), Fjærland (until 1849), and Vangsnes (until 1849). They include records for the state religion (Lutheran) but also for "dissenters". Many of these registers were microfilmed for the FHL library, and later digitized and made available online through the Norwegian Digital Archives (Digitalarkivet). The Digital Archives make available newer registers that were not part of the Family History Library microfilms.

Tjugum, Fjærland and Vangsnes became part of Balestrand clerical district in 1849 - their records after this date are covered by source:

Note that Digitalarkivet includes searchable transcribed records for some of the registers - the transcription appears to be ongoing. The search has limited flexibility and does not appear to support soundex at this time.
